German French Toast

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 8 thick slices of french bread
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 large tart apples - peeled/cored/sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 8-ounce links of smoked bratwurst - sliced
  • 1/4 cup onion - minced
  • 8 teaspoons sugar/cinnamon mixture (50/50)
  • maple syrup (for topping)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Separate egg whites and yolks.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg yolks and lemon rind.

Soak break slices in egg mixture until saturated.

Whisk egg whites until frothy. Dip soaked bread in whites and then dredge in bread crumbs.

Arrange saturated bread on greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove, turn over and return to oven for 10 minutes longer.

While toast is baking, place apple slices in small saucepan with the 2 cups water and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.

Separately, saute bratwurst and onions together until crispy brown.

To put it all together, sprinkle toast with sugar/cinnamon mixture, cover with cooked, drained apple slices, sauteed bratwurst and onions.

Serve with maple syrup.


This is a pretty complex recipe, but it's worth the effort. It'll certainly expand your mind as far as French Toast goes.

This is the best ever! The mix of sweet with the savory of the bratwurst and onion is interesting and awesome.

I can imagine this might be good (sweet and savory), but I'm not gonna be the first to try it. Please post if you tried it.
